Well I hoped I could get this to show up as a double page layout - never mind you get the drift of this 2 pager - Halloween isnt a big deal here - despite some stores trying to convince us it is !!
But its a big deal to Hannah - she counts down the days till Halloween from some time in September!! This is because of her absolute obsession with lollies ( or candy as I would say to my American Friends ) . Anyway she was NOT going to be "any of those scarey ugly things" she was going to wear her princess dress , but when she went to get into it I noticed that she had "decrorated"the front with felt pen - then obviously tried to wash it off - not successfully - so I had to race around and find something else suitable for her to wear.
We ended up with this cute out fit - made very much from bits and pieces - the hat is an adults one Id bought from the $2 store a few years ago - it needed a few staples to get it to fit her head . - The scarf is one of mine - that I had lost but we found in the dress up bin downstairs . - The dress of course was her best dress from 2 christmases ago - which sadly is too short for her now and Im disappointed that this will likely be the last time she will wear it.
The cape - well thats an old full length petticoat of mine that I pinned round her neck . So there it is - A 'not so' wicked witch - well maybe a 'quite' wicked witch at times!!- who less than 12 hours after these photos were taken woke up covered in chickenpox - so as usual her timing was perfect!!!
